In order to manage conflict effectively, and hopefully resolve it, we need certain skills such as listening and the ability to take other people’s perspectives. However, what makes us able to use those skills is our mindset. If we do not have a constructive conflict mindset, no amount of skills training is going to be effective. In this webinar you will learn the elements of a constructive conflict mindset and how to develop it, so that people can engage in conflict constructively.

Discover the elements of a constructive conflict mindset and why it's fundamental to effective conflict mindset.

Explore how we can develop a constructive conflict mindset, and the shifts that are required to do so.
